Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 81 Monroe Avenue in Brighton Heights, Staten Island. Located between Benziger Avenue and Corson Avenue, the interior lot is within walking distance of the Tompkinsville station, serviced by the Staten Island Railway. Maxwell-Kates under the Montgo LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Manhattan-based Maxwell-Kates has proposed to build a six-story, 68-unit residential project at 93 Monroe Avenue, in St. George, located on Staten Island’s North Shore. The developer is seeking a zoning variance from the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA), DNAinfo reported. The proposal includes roughly double the number of residential units permitted under current zoning and would rise 20 feet above the height cap. The block-thru assemblage consists of four single- and two-story houses. Neither new building applications nor demolition permits have been filed. The lots were acquired for an undisclosed amount in 2015. Staten Island Borough President James Oddo is publicly urging the BSA to reject granting a the variance.
